Today's challenge is best Fighter anime. There's a mess of them out there and at least 3 new ones every season. How does one pick THE best? Simple, one person can't, so here are my favorite Fighter anime.
Fist of the North Star
This series is old, but awesome, I missed it during its first run, but found it during the 1990s. Its drawing style has been parodied in numerous anime when the protagonist get serious, instant North Star Face.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world that has been destroyed by a nuclear war, the story centers on a warrior named Kenshiro, the successor of a deadly martial art style known as Hokuto Shinken, which gives him the ability to kill most adversaries from within through the use of the human body's secret vital points, often resulting in an exceptionally violent and gory death. Kenshiro dedicates his life to fighting against the various ravagers who threaten the lives of the weak and innocent, as well as rival martial artists, including his own "brothers" from the same clan.
Even though the fan service was over the top, I think this was a great fighting anime.
